Four more weeks of The Creative Pathfinder Course full of valuable lessons on nurturing our creative talents and successfully bringing them forth into the world. As my study and practice of meditation and consciousness continues, I see more and more overlap between the wisdom of those life elements and healthy, successful creative work.
Jeph and I attended and volunteered our energies to the Science and Nonduality Conference this past weekend. I am glad to have experienced it and grateful for the insights and food for thought/contemplation.
What resonated, through my lens:
All of us – people, creatures, elements, the whole earth, sun/moon/stars/planets – are connected. We Are All One.
I volunteered for a daylong at Spirit Rock this past weekend. It was my first time volunteering there, first daylong, first time doing walking meditation, and first time practicing lovingkindness. A lot of firsts in one day!
I made my first visit to Spirit Rock last month with the intention of getting a feel for the place and community and seeking guidance on my spiritual path. As I sat there, breathing steadily, tuning in to my body and energy, and consciously letting go of any tension I was holding, I realized what a gift it is to simply Be, to allow ourselves the time and space to slow down, breathe, and release.
I started to get “a feeling” and asked Jeph if maybe it was a Grateful Dead tribute. He confirmed that yes that phrase is from a Dead song. A couple stopped by and confirmed that it was a memorial to Jerry Garcia. I shared with all of them the coincidence of having Dead songs running through my head all week, choosing that spot to lock the bikes, then happening upon the memorial. They added to that coincidence the facts that his birth date was six days prior and the day he passed away was in two days. It started to feel like more than a coincidence.
Yesterday I fell down, and it hurt. But it also woke me up a little bit, and that’s a good thing. I recognized it as a teachable moment – teaching myself: Pay Attention, Be Focused and Present.
Recently I wrote about the *free* desk that Jeph and I happened upon while out on a Sunday bike ride. I had been envisioning something very, very similar to what we found. It’s a perfect second desk/workspace and something we totally needed.
Now that is pretty cool. That is clearly Manifestation – The Law of Attraction – at work.
